New DiscoveriesShadows of a Half Life—I recently reconnected with an old friend, and she just started blogging. I’m very much looking forward to that which she thinks and writes over the next while.
Six Impossible Things—This isn’t super accurate since I’ve known of Topaz for quite a while, but I’ve only really started paying attention to her blog over the last few months. She is poetic and not to be missed.
Weaving Waves Words—Also not the newest, but I still think of Shanti and Shar as my “new blogging friends” because I don’t have newer blogging friends. Anyway, they are book bloggers with a merry sense of humor, and go visit them.
Less-New Favorites(*facepalm* I don’t like this. Because, you know what, if you get me to follow your blog I will follow you for a long time. And if you don’t get me to follow your blog then we’ll probably never see each other again. Blah.)
Curiosity Collections—Bailey is a sweet blogger who talks about her life and writing. I don’t really remember how I found her but I’ve looked forward to her posts ever since!
The Endless Oceans of My Mind—After being paired together as CPs on another website, Victoria sent me her blog. She writes about Australia and writing and books and superheroes and it is an enjoyable sort of thing to read.
Out of Coffee, Out of Mind—I love what Liz writes. From discussions to personal life stories to writing reflections, Liz is profound and good at capturing your brain. I really hope Liz blogs a long time because I’d read her a long time.
Paper Fury—I feel like Cait has used her bookish wiles to worm her way into the heart of nearly every other book blogger out there (not that I’m a book blogger, of course). She’s funny and talks about books and has good GIFs and is just an enjoyable person, even if she demands complete and total loyalty to be her friend—er, subject.
Old FavoritesThe Devil Orders Takeout—I ran into Alyssa in the days of the TCWT Blog Chain, and I have enjoyed her words since. She talks about culture and writing and books with humor and wit and snark, but she also has her priorities in order with diversity and representation and things. *nods*
Opal Swirls—Where did Opal come from? I don’t know. It’s like she’s always been there. She represents herself on her blog, through books and stories and GIFs that remind us who she is and what she lives for. It is lovely.
Summer Snowflakes—Alexa has always been here too. She’s a team player and a community member, and I like how willing she is to say a kind word about a fellow blogger or a book she loved. Her kindness is amazing. And I’m not just being a suckup cuz she tagged me for this.
To the Barricade—Aimee has skills. In GIF usage. In humor. In writing. And in blogging about them, too. She’s good for thought-provoking posts and also laughs. Also, she isn’t afraid to share unpopular opinions, and I admire that.
So, yeah. There are plenty more bloggers who I love, plenty more bloggers I’ve stuck with for a long time, but for now, I feel as though I’ve satisfied the requirements.
Those listed can consider themselves tagged, unless they don’t want to, in which they may claim a virtual cookie instead.
